Abstract
Research was conducted to identify and assess the relative importance of major factors affecting the supply and demand of secondary copper, which in turn determine the amount of copper scrap recycled. The analysis is confined to the American secondary copper industry and to the post-World War II period. The report briefly reviews several econometric models of relevance to this study, describes the institutional framework of the secondary copper industry in the United States, and examines the nature of costs in the industry. The report also describes the econometric model and the results it produces, summarizes the major findings, considers a few of the implications for public policy, and identifies avenues for future research.
